I hope everyone's enjoying their Labor Day weekend!
My wife heard about https://www.aaabussales.com/store/c2/Store.html
They buy buses at auction, fix them up and sell them for $9K.
I thought that if they replaced the bald tires (I don't yet know if they do this or not), performed the necessary maintenance so that it will pass Phoenix AZ Vehicle Inspection, that this would be worth the time, effort and cost of finding a bus at auction, paying a mechanic to give it an inspection, calling the fleet mechanic from the previous owners to find out the vehicle history and paying someone to perform any needed maintenance, not to mention that I will be able to drive her home with out any issues.
I also think this will allow me to get a bus sooner than next summer, since they have a large and circulating inventory.
I was hoping to get a sanity check from someone.
I think this is a really good idea, but maybe some folks with more experience would be kind enough to share their thoughts.
Thank you in advance for your kind attention.
